's mostly about the economy. >> i'm going to agree with jonathan here. this is an election certainly about the economy. when they go into the voting booths on voting day, it's about the economy. i think romney has the opportunity here and needs to take it. to link obama's economic policies with his foreign policies, i don't think he should go after romney on the philosophical differences between his foreign policy and obama's. frankly, it's hard to figure out what obama's foreign policy philosophy is. he needs to talk about broken promises and incompetent and link the broken promises and incompetent and the foreign policy to those in the economic policy. i thought the speech today was good. it gave the right and his supporters some red meat. they like to hear things like leading from behind and all of that, but i hope he saves up some ammo for the foreign policy debate and lays out an argument we've talked about of criticizing obama's foreign policy from the left. what do you think about that, john that? >> i think there are places where that's do y-able where yo can criticize it from the
is in the mid 1980s there was the farm economy which basically collapsed in the midwest. what you had was a much worse economic environment in those states and the rest of the country, you had a republican in the white house, two terms of reagan. the voters seemed to take it out on the incumbent party in a way that didn't happen anywhere else. i'm looking at, for instance, a state like ohio where obama has been consistent. the economy is better in ohio than it is around the country. you have the auto bailout that obama put in place has clearly helped that state. could it be that he has a leg up in a state like ohio and a few others like iowa that he doesn't have anywhere else in the country and there are two separate elections? i'm seriously wondering. >> there's a point to what you're making partly because if we go against steve on the numbers we're going to lose. >> who would do that. never. >> there is definitely noise in the national number because there are states in the south and appalacia where obama's numbers are depressed and other states where it's closer. all of that factored into the
economy. mitt romney knows it's not wall street it to worry about but sesame street. >> in a team obama ad clearly meant for us in the media and clearly because it's not arg in many battleground states, big bird is the real menace to the american economy. apparently elmo isn't exactly tickled by the ad. sesame straigeet doesn't want te involved. republicans don't think all of sesame street has to be evil. maybe they need to clean up the street signs and clean up the block. >> it wouldn't team kids to share. >> it would put that sharing in context. >> would you share your food with someone? >> yes. >> that would create a culture of dependency. >> if they don't centhave any f i'll give it to them. >> you take away the motivation for them to win the food for themselves. did you not read the copy of atlas i loaned you? >> apparently sesame street was only the first stop for mitt romney. now he's stop for romney. it's followed by a kids vote that's correctly predicted the winner of five of the six elections. i think they got gore right in 2000. president obama has agreed to participate taking
this is an election that's about the economy, but pollster actually did a test of mitt romney's messages, several of his messages, and the one with the resonance of independents was actually his critique of the p president on foreign policy. >> he said the developments in the middle east are bumps in the road. yeah. that was my reaction. bumps in the road? we had an ambassador assassinated. we had a muslim brotherhood member elected to the presidency of egypt. 20,000 people killed in syria. we have tumult in pakistan. and of course, iran is that much closer to having the capacity to build a nuclear weapon. >> now, this -- these messaging tests before the latest romney reboot and may have some more messages and literally only oned that moved the needle at all with independents. >> yeah. i'm skeptical of the idea that foreign policy will literally move voters in the election either way. i see a real political risk here for obama because of the timing of this. i don't know where the investigation's going. i'm wanting to get to the bottom of this but it sounds like in the headlines, the noise generat
about the deficit. it's not the deficit, it's the economy, wall street, meltdown. he starts talking about we put iraq, afghanistan, wars that biden himself voted for, he went down the wrong route after introducing a good point there. >> paul ryan didn't push him on that, wasn't quick enough to recognize -- >> you voted to are that, sir. >> that would have been painful. the stimulus letter discussion was absolutely devastating. >> i love my friend here. i'm not allowed to show letters. go on our website. he sent me two letters saying, by the way, can you send me stimulus money for companies here in the state of wisconsin? we sent millions of dollars. >> you did ask for stimulus money? >> on two oaks we advocated for constituents who were applying for grants. that's what we do. we do that for all constituents. >> i love that. i love that. >> i love that, too. once again, obstructionist republicans opposing policies that they actually support and know will be valuable for americans. >> the romney team had a bit of an issue this week, romney had a multiple choice situation on abortion a
